What do refugee criminals cost taxpayers?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 20, 2018

It is a question I have asked many times over the years!

Whenever I see a news story with some glowing report about how refugees financially benefit the communities in which they are placed, I suspect that all the costs to society are never calculated. 

For instance….

Costs like remittance dollars sent out of the US economy (a story for another day!)? Cost of interpreters for myriad obscure languages? Complete cost of educating the children? Costs associated with elderly and infirm refugees? And, the cost of crime, of courts, of prison time!

 

Victorville

High security federal prison, Victorville, in California where an Uzbek refugee attempted to murder the prison warden!

 

We have had a bunch of refugee crime stories lately including the Iraqi alleged terrorist found living in California, the Iraqi who shot a police officer in the head in Colorado, the Uzbek sentenced for trying to kill the prison warden, the Ethiopian alleged human rights abuser arrested in Virginia last week, and see today’s more detailed story about the Arizona Somalis who lied to get in to the US. (All those and 2,000 more stories are posted in my Crimes category.)

Someone with accounting and financial skills needs to put some time in to researching the costs to the US taxpayer of refugee criminals in America.

Secret decoder ring needed! This time in Virginia and Arizona

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 5, 2018

I’ve been joking about the fact that the vast majority of news stories about violent crimes report that the “man” was responsible and then go on to name the arrested man, not as Bob Jones or Fred Smith, but Mohamed A. Abdullahi or Chukwumankpam Mbegbu.

adios america cover

Ann Coulter made light of this fact in her best seller “Adios America.” 

She said citizens need “secret decoder rings” when reading news stories in order to figure out where certain violent criminals came from and how they got to America (illegally? or through some legal program) because the police and the media are going to keep those facts secret unless an enterprising reporter does some serious digging.

Two more such cases came to my attention over the last few days.

World Refugee Day cancelled in Lewiston, Maine

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 19, 2018

Tomorrow, June 20th, is World Refugee Day created by the United Nations in the year 2000.

Each year since, it has served as a media hook for reports and glowing stories about refugee contributions to America. (The Left is so good at creating propaganda opportunities!)

But, for Lewiston, Maine this week, the word ‘refugee’ is not a happy word.

Lewiston, ME: Man attacked by gang of Somali teens dies

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 16, 2018

We told you recently that roving gangs of Somali ‘children’ and teens were terrorizing park goers in the Somali capital of New England, see here.

Now someone is dead.

Here is the brief article from the Lewiston Sun Journal that hints at a racial component but incredibly never mentions the ‘S’ word—Somali.   (Hat tip: Maine First)

Youtube shooter was a refugee from Iran

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 5, 2018

That is what the LA Times is reporting, here.  (Hat tip: Peter)

nasim

Attempted murderer Nasim Najafi Aghdam

Surely you’ve seen the story about an animal rights activist shooting human beings a few days ago, but if you haven’t, check out the LA Times.

I only want to make a couple of points.  First here is a tiny snip of the story:

Aghdam entered the country as a refugee roughly two decades ago, a family member said. In one of her videos, she said she was born in Urmia, Iran — where she and other members of her Baha’i faith face discrimination — and that her family had spent a year and a half in Turkey.

Turkey?

Readers need to know that Turkey has been a major processing center for refugees from the Middle East (imagine what fraud could be happening there!) for many years.

Trump Admin doesn’t process as many through Turkey

I’ve reported on the processing countries on several occasions, but it might be instructive to see that as Obama was leaving office, Turkey was one of our top processing centers, here.  And, then here, a year later, Turkey has been demoted as a processing country. I don’t have the inside skinny on what happened.

The mentally ill are admissible as refugees

The other thing you need to know is that we don’t screen for mental illness in the refugee admissions process—we take many nuts! 

(Based on this reporting and her age now, she was an adult when admitted to the US.)

And, when those nuts do something as violent criminals, you dear taxpayers support them for the rest of their natural lives!  (Not the case this time, she spared you by killing herself!)

Ignore the refugee industry propaganda which posits that refugees don’t commit crimes, visit my ‘Crimes’ category here with over 2,000 previous posts!

(Most) Minnesota media fails to mention attacker was a Somali man

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 27, 2017

I hadn’t noticed the story until Christmas day or so when Ann Coulter posted a series of tweets about the complete absence of any description of the man who attacked a woman walking home from work.  (Ann had the date of the attack wrong, but not the fact about the apparent media coverup.)

If you read Coulter’s ‘Adios America’ you know that this is a recurring theme in the book. The news media (not all of it, but most of it!) will turn itself into pretzels trying to hide the facts (and the nationality) about immigration status of migrants involved in crimes, often simply referring to him as “man.”  Or, LOL! if the attacker used a vehicle it becomes “truck killed…..”

 

Ann Coulter tweet

 

When I saw that tweet I went on a hunt for the stories too, but never saw any description either (I didn’t bother watching the one TV news bit, but I should have.)  I’ve noticed on several previous occasions that the text accompanying a broadcast story leaves out the key piece of information that someone has deemed politically incorrect to mention even when it was mentioned on air—that the alleged perp is an immigrant of some stripe.

Here Leo Hohmann at WND fills in the blanks (hat tip: Joanne):

Morgan Evenson was walking home in downtown Minneapolis about 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 13 when a black man got out of his car, chased her down, tackled and stabbed her repeatedly.

Morgan-Evenson

Morgan Evenson

The feisty 26-year-old frantically fought back, kicking, scratching and screaming for help.

At some point, neighbors heard her screams and came to help. Her attacker – described as a Somali man in his early 20s, about 5-foot-7 with a slight build and wearing grey stone-washed jeans – ran away.

Evenson was left bleeding on the curb with 14 stab wounds on her arms, neck and back. Her kidney was lacerated. She was lucky to survive the attack.

It happened while she was walking home from the Apple Store, where she worked, about eight blocks away from her apartment. That’s when the man attacked her for no apparent reason. Police, who have not made any arrests in the case, are calling it a botched robbery.

Police have called the case unusual for the level of brutality just to get a woman’s purse, leading some to wonder if the assailant didn’t want more than just a purse.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the city’s largest newspaper, has been AWOL on the story.

The newspaper’s on-duty news editor, Maria Reeve, did not return WND’s calls Tuesday to inquire about why it went dark on such a brutal, unprovoked attack on a defenseless, unarmed woman walking home from work.

Other media, such as the Southwest Journal, have reported on the crime but left out the assailant’s full description as a Somali migrant.

Only one media outlet, local ABC News affiliate KSTP, included in its on-air coverage the fact that the victim described her assailant as Somali, but the station’s website article failed to mention that fact.

Continue here to read about other Minnesota criminal cases involving Somalis swept under the rug in Minnesota—America’s ‘canary in a coal mine’ about the advancing hijra.

Then here is our friend Deb Anderson:

“It was interesting the articles I read didn’t say anything about the police coming. Not a thing. Just sounds like the classic media template used in Europe,” Anderson told WND. “You had to get all the way through that KSTP [broadcast only] report to find out he’s Somali, and it was never mentioned in the other media outlets at all.”

That’s very disconcerting for someone who has been trying to educate Minnesotans about the pitfalls of kowtowing to the Somali community and its “civil rights” advocates at CAIR.

“It’s unofficial but Minnesota law enforcement agencies are enforcing, or at least tolerating, Shariah law. Most people don’t know it yet but the police are not here to protect the indigenous Minnesotans anymore,” Anderson said. “They have been incrementally changing their search policies and their use of force policies for years. We’re not being protected anymore. They’re protecting the Muslims, so it’s becoming increasingly like Europe. Yes, it’s here now.”

Go here for more.

If you missed my decade review yesterday, see it here, notice that three main issues jump out of those most-read posts since 2007:  Minnesota, Somalis and Europe.

New Hampshire: Muslim refugee charged with inappropriate sexual contact with several young girls

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 21, 2017

The Muslim refugee, Mohammod Rafique , is described as a man who arrived from Myanmar two years ago.

That would make him one of the 19,000 plus Rohingya refugees we have admitted from Burma (aka Myanmar) in the last ten years.  See here just yesterday.

Mayor Donchess

We love diversity! Nashua Mayor Jim Donchess proposed a resolution last year to make Nashua a “welcoming city”  here:  http://www.newhampshire.com/Social-issues/Refugee-concerns-voiced-in-Nashua-09222016

Prosecutors wanted a $50,000 bond but the judge set bail at $15,000.  If he gets out, will he return to court or disappear into the woodwork of America like so many other Muslim refugees charged in a variety of assault cases in recent years?

From WMUR-9 (hat tip: Jeannine):

A Nashua man is facing accusations that he had inappropriate contact with several young girls.

Mohammod Rafique is facing six charges, including two counts of felonious sexual assault. Nashua police said the incident happened in late August and involves four girls, including a 7-year-old.

“We’re alleging these offenses have had a great and substantial effect on both them and their parents,” prosecutor Don Topham said.

Rafique was described in court as a refugee from Myanmar who has lived in Nashua for two years. An interpreter was provided by phone.  [Interpreters will run up his legal costs to taxpayers big time!—ed]

Authorities said the charges involve inappropriate touching and happened at some sort of gathering.

“Through the investigation, we learned that he was acquainted with one girl’s family,” Lt. Kerry Baxter said. “He had attempted to offer them money and gifts and things like that to get one or more of the girls back to his house.”

Learn more about refugees going to New Hampshire, here.  See my archive on the state by clicking here. And, for your reading pleasure, I have over 2,000 posts with refugee/immigrant crime stories from all over the globe.

The way things are going on the federal level, if you are concerned about what is happening where you live, you are going to have to get busy booting mayors like Donchess from office.

Virginia: Iraqi refugee to plead guilty today to lying on refugee application

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 28, 2017

She failed to disclose a family relationship to an Iraqi terrorist.  Ho hum! There was no American fatally affected.

I’m joking because in a story I read within the last day, but can’t remember where, a pro-more-refugees advocate qualified his comment about no refugees committing terror attacks to say—no US refugee committed a fatal terror attack on US soil.  That isn’t true, and, the main reason there aren’t more is that the cases have been foiled!

This is the story we reported in March.

(Dear Supreme Court, family members lie!)

We learn that the Iraqi female liar will admit guilt today.

From AP at the Lincoln Journal Star (hat tip: Joanne). BTW, I searched and searched for any photos of the perps, but found none.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — A Virginia woman living in the U.S. as an Iraqi refugee for the last decade is scheduled to plead guilty Wednesday to federal charges after being charged with hiding her ties to the kidnapper of a U.S. contractor. [Translation—she lied on her refugee application and in her screening interviews!—ed]

Enas (eh-NAHS’) Ibrahim of Vienna was charged in March on allegations of visa fraud.

Prosecutors say Ibrahim, her husband and her husband’s brother all came to the U.S. and settled in the suburbs of the nation’s capital after receiving refugee status.

But prosecutors say the two men are brothers of Majid Al Mashhandani, who admitted participating in the 2004 kidnapping of U.S. contractor Roy Hallums.

Fraud, fraud and more fraud!

In addition to leaving out any reference to the Islamic terrorist brother because people told them in Iraq (who told them, a refugee contractor!) that they would be rejected from the refugee program if they revealed the terrorist brother, they FABRICATED PERSECUTION STORIES FOR THEMSELVES.

See the DOJ press release from March with all of the details of their lies.

How many more Iraqis lied to get in as refugees and to gain citizenship?

Checking Wrapsnet just now, I see that since the US opened the floodgates for Iraqis we have admitted 140,576 with no end in sight!

Virginia is number seven in the top ten receiving states with 4,536.

Alaska got 49 and Hawaii got a whopping four!

Memory lane: Yes, Virginia, US refugees commit crimes

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 22, 2017

“They went through terror themselves, so I couldn’t imagine them inflicting that on anyone else.”

(Barbara Smith, former Catholic Refugee Agency employee, told the court)

 

Again and again, I hear from citizen activists who tell me that their local refugee advocates/contractors or interfaith groups are spreading the tall tale that refugees admitted to the US have no record of committing crimes.  I know it is preposterous, but they continue to spread the lie.

To give them the benefit of the doubt, maybe they really don’t know the truth because in fact the mainstream media has gone out of its way to not report refugee crimes on a national level. Yes, local TV and print media do report the crimes, but rarely have these stories made it to even the cable networks.

So, because there is no central clearing house of refugee crimes/terror arrests etc., I’ll try to re-cap some cases every few days.  You might also want to visit my ‘Crimes’ category to do some research yourselves, but I warn you it is huge!

Today, let’s go over the story of the 2009 Roanoke kidnapping plot thwarted by the quick-thinking would-be victim. 

I’m especially interested in this story today because the perps should have finished their prison sentences some time ago and I wonder if they have been deported as was originally announced they would be.  (See my previous post on deportations to Africa)

Thank goodness I snipped a lot of the 2009 story about the Roanoke kidnapping because the original link is now dead. For details on what the Roanoke REFUGEES plotted to do, see the FBI press release here (May 8, 2009).

My post from November 3, 2009:

Yesterday a judge in Roanoke, Virginia sentenced four former refugees to short prison sentences and deportation when they are released from prison in the attempted kidnapping case that shocked rural Virginia.

From the Roanoke Times (link is now dead):

The plot was bizarre, carefully planned and amateurishly executed: To make money in America, three young men from refugee families set out to find a wealthy woman, abduct her from her home and hold her for ransom.

Now an Obama-appointed District Judge, Judge Michael Urbanski, noting their refugee status, called the case “sad” here: https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2009/05/18/refugees-arrested-in-roanoke-va-for-plot-to-kidnap-women-for-ransom/

It all unraveled as soon as Audrey Levicki answered the door to her Southwest Roanoke County home.

Suspicious that the two men were not the Red Cross volunteers they claimed to be, Levicki braced the door with her foot and then slammed it shut on the arm of the one who tried to reach inside.

The two men ran off, despite months of planning and a getaway car waiting at the end of the driveway with rope, handcuffs and other tools of a kidnapping. The duo was quickly arrested along with two accomplices, setting in motion a series of unintended consequences that culminated Monday at a sentencing hearing in U.S. District Court in Roanoke.

Levicki, whose intended fate was to be held in a rundown camper until her captors could collect up to $1 million from her corporate executive husband, said that she is now a prisoner in her own home.

“My life went to hell on April 6,” Levicki said in a statement to Judge James Turk, recounting how the incident led to fearful days, sleepless nights and a loss of security so profound that she no longer ventures outside to feed the dog unless armed with a baseball bat.

For the three African natives who tried to kidnap Levicki — Luke Musa Elbino, 20; Mohammed Hussein Guhad, 20; and Joshua Kasongo, 19 — the consequences went beyond the five-and-a-half-year prison terms they received at the end of a daylong hearing.

Once they are released from prison, the three face almost certain deportation back to Somalia, Sudan and Rwanda — countries their families fled when they were boys to escape civil war and genocide.

Then here is the ultimate in liberal do-gooder hubris:

“They went through terror themselves, so I couldn’t imagine them inflicting that on anyone else,” Barbara Smith, the retired head of the nonprofit Refugee and Immigration Services* office in Roanoke, said while testifying for the defendants.

People like Smith assume that when the US shows kindness, the kindness will be returned.  She can’t believe that young men plucked from the hell hole of Africa could bite the hand that feeds them.

Go here for more of that November 2009 post.

So there we go, refugee criminals (it is a good thing they were really dumb!). Where are they today? Back in Africa or walking the streets of Anytown, USA?

Recommendation for citizens in ‘pockets of resistance:’ consider, as one of our readers did, making a poster or handout with refugee crime/terrorist cases.  Pick maybe the top ten you find on these pages or elsewhere and have it handy to distribute.

Iraqi refugees arrested in Virginia for lying on their refugee admission applications

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 30, 2017

They lied more than once!

The first whopper was a lie of omission.  They failed to mention that their brother was a terrorist. And, at least one of them made up his “persecution” story to justify his admission to the US as a refugee.

Hasan admitted to making false statements and creating his persecution story.

If the story sounds familiar, lying on ones refugee application is what caught the two Iraqi refugee terrorists in Kentucky now doing life in prison at taxpayers’ expense.

There were a couple of brief stories about this Virginia case in the news over the last few days which I never could find time to get to, but this morning I’m seeing the full Dept. of Justice press release and posting it below in its shocking entirety! (emphasis is mine)

 

Iraqi Refugees Arrested and Charged With Immigration Fraud

Yousif Al Mashhandani (“Yousif”), 35, of Vienna, Virginia, and Adil Hasan, 38, of Burke, Virginia, who are full biological brothers, were arrested this morning. The third individual charged is Enas Ibrahim, 32, also of Burke, who is the wife of Hasan. Each are charged with attempting to obtain naturalization contrary to law. The defendants will have their initial appearance today in front of Magistrate Judge Ivan D. Davis at 2 p.m. at the federal courthouse in Alexandria, Virginia.

Acting Deputy Attorney General and U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Dana J. Boente, Assistant Director in Charge Andrew W. Vale of the FBI’s Washington Field and Special Agent in Charge Patrick J. Lechleitner of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Washington, D.C., made the announcement.

According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, on Nov. 1, 2004, a U.S. citizen, identified as R.H., was kidnapped and held with other hostages for months in horrible conditions in an underground bunker. After a raid in 2005 freed the hostages, Majid Al Mashhadani (“Majid”), who is a full biological brother of Yousif and Hasan, was detained and admitted his complicity in the kidnapping of R.H.

According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, Yousif was admitted into the U.S. as a refugee in 2008.

In May 2013, Yousif resided in Vienna and applied for naturalization as a U.S. citizen. In connection with Yousif’s applications for citizenship, his fingerprints were taken. According to an FBI fingerprint specialist, analysis conducted in November 2013 determined that Yousif’s fingerprints match those found on a document at the underground bunker where forces rescued R.H. and others in Iraq in 2005.

According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, Yousif, Hasan and Ibrahim are lawful permanent residents and have applied to naturalize and become U.S. citizens. On various applications and forms throughout their respective immigration processes, each has provided an extensive list of family members and information of their respective family trees; however, none listed any reference to Majid.

According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, on March 4, 2016, FBI agents interviewed Yousif, Hasan and Ibrahim. When FBI agents asked Yousif why he failed to include reference to Majid on the family tree form, Yousif said he omitted reference to Majid because, when he was a refugee, he was told by others applying for refugee status that he would not be allowed into the U.S. if any immediate family members had a criminal background. Hasan admitted to FBI agents that Majid was his brother. Hasan and Ibrahim each admitted they discussed not including Majid’s name on their applications for refugee status because their connection to Majid might delay their ability to gain such status.

According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, to justify his application for refugee status, Yousif reported that in 2006, while working as an anti-corruption investigator for the Iraqi Commission on Public Integrity in Iraq, he started receiving threats from a Shiite militia known as the “Al Mahdi Militia,” in order to coerce Yousif to drop a particular corruption investigation. Yousif said that in May 2006, Hasan was kidnapped by the Al Mahdi Militia, and was released only after Yousif arranged to drop the investigation in question and helped pay a large ransom. Yousif said that after Hasan was released, he reopened the corruption investigation, only to flee to Jordon in October 2006 after his parents’ house was burned down.

According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, to justify his application for refugee status, Hasan provided sworn testimony that, in 2006, he had been kidnapped and tortured by members of the Al Mahdi Army and held for nearly a month. Hasan said he was released upon the payment of a ransom of $20,000. In an interview by FBI agents in April 2016, Hasan said he was threatened in Iraq on two occasions, but made no mention of being kidnapped, held hostage and tortured for nearly a month. In a subsequent interview in October 2016, FBI agents confronted Hasan about the discrepancy in his stories and Hasan admitted to making false statements and creating his persecution story.

A criminal complaint contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed to be innocent until and unless proven guilty in court. Each defendant faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison if convicted. The maximum statutory sentence is prescribed by Congress and is provided here for informational purposes. If convicted of any offense, the sentencing of the defendants will be determined by the court based on the advisory Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, which includes ICE/HSI and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Gordon Kromberg and Collen Garcia for the Eastern District of Virginia are prosecuting the case.

No mention of deportation???

And, the big question is, how many more refugees (who don’t have a high profile terrorist brother!) have lied on their refugee applications to America?

BTW, Virginia ranks #7 in the nation for the number of Iraqis placed in the state by the US Dept. of State and its contractors.  See my next post.
